We stayed there four nights in a western style room. The hotel was very clean. Our room was quite basic but roomy and pleasant.

Just 10 min by walk from the main station we enjoyed staying in this Guesthouse where we received not only a warm welcome but also very good explanations of how to take good advantage of Kyoto and all the nice places to see there. It’s...More
Ryokan Sakura Honganji is really a flowery meadow in the old town of Kyoto: very nice and super clean rooms, futon-beds to dream in and an adorable staff with so many service offers in many way! We really loved the delightful and very personal support...More
We've stayed with Sakura several times and with each time we get the same wonderful care and service. Top notch staff, comfortable clean rooms and excellent breakfasts. This time we took my parents who thoroughly enjoyed their first time to Japan. Thank you Anna Lina...More
We enjoyed staying in Sakura Honganji. We took an English speaking taxi who knew where we had to go. Warm welcome, clean, good explanation. They have all kind of practical info when you get there.... where to go. They organize tea ceremony in house, calligraphy,...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
As far as we know, there is no constant desk service at night, though I think there's usually someone nearby. We were given a key to get in the front door after ?10 or 11 p.m. It is best you make arrangement with the host... More
As far as we know, there is no constant desk service at night, though I think there's usually someone nearby. We were given a key to get in the front door after ?10 or 11 p.m. It is best you make arrangement with the host as to when (even roughly) you plan to get in. They are very nice people to deal with.

My wife and I walked from Kyoto Station to the ryokan with luggage - big rolling suitcases. It wasn't too bad, and took maybe 15 to 20 minutes (we got a little lost). At the end of our stay, we took the bus to the station with our luggage. It was much quicker, of course - only a couple of stops. However, if the bus is crowded, it's difficult to get the luggage on. The main bus stop for the ryokan (Nishi Honganji) is about a minute's walk away. We didn't go to Gion during our stay in Kyoto, so I don't know about that.
